Green is the key element in this unique space

Since early times, there have been many medicine shelves at pharmacies where handle herbal medicine. Though furniture with many drawers is supposed to be filled with medicine, Id Inc felt that it is also filled with history and deep knowledge of herbal medicine.

The space painted in mint green color freshly expresses a world of herbal medicine derived from plants. The soft color is intended to create curiously ambivalent atmosphere that heaviness and lightness of furniture coexist.

In contrast, the clinic for acupuncture and moxibustion is a quiet space painted in uniformed white. Thick drape curtains were intended to create a soft impression even though it is an examination room.

The medicine shelves are lined up and stacked up. Opened drawers are designed to display natural medicine samples, offering a whiff of its aroma and a touch of it texture. Furniture used for providing counseling sessions such as a light fixture, desk, and sofa, which constitutes its space, was also designed to have a uniform expression as medicine shelves.

Taking advantage of its wide opening frame, the place reflected the idea of being a large show window. The Kampo lounge is decked in mint green while the clinic for acupuncture and moxibustion is decked in white. It expressly brings the message across that the two spaces serve different purposes.
